Selection of Powdered Activated Carbon for EPA MATS Compliance

Many in the electric generating industry see powdered activated carbon (PAC) for mercury control as a commodity product where in fact incorrect carbon selection could make a difference in your yearly activated carbon costs of several hundred thousands of dollars per year. PACs are different and where they are injected in your power plant can impact their effectiveness and thus yearly costs for compliance. Therefore PAC selection should be based on more than solely cost per pound. This discussion will be based on but not limited to your plant’s coal type, air pollution control devices (existing and planned installations to comply with EPA regulations), fly ash and other by-product salability, and your plant’s overall operations and disposal requirements.  Furthermore, activated carbon manufacturing and its properties will be reviewed.

Full-Scale Trials of Non-Halogenated Activated Carbon for Mercury Capture

The EPA refers to activated carbon as “the most successfully demonstrated mercury-specific control technology” that also has minimal installation requirements. Within this industry, bromine and other halogens are typically applied to the activated carbon to enhance mercury oxidation and capture. However, the corrosive nature of these additives has the potential to cause larger issues for power plants with extended use. Carbonxt testing with carbon tailoring and alternative additives have shown to achieve the same or better performance results while maintaining the integrity of the plant. Recent full-scale tests have been conducted that include a span of coal and boiler types, injection location/particulate control configurations, injection rates, and concentration of SO3 (inherent and injected for flue-gas conditioning).  This presentation will review the mercury control performance and operational impacts, including particle emissions and fly ash utilization, of these recent test events.

Performance of Non-Halogenated Activated Carbon for Mercury Compliance

With the introduction of the first national standards for mercury pollution from power plants in December of 2011, many facilities will turn to activated carbon injection to meet the regulatory demands.  Activated carbon injection is a mature technology that is widely available and proven for achieving mercury removal greater than 90%.  In anticipation of the need, Carbonxt has developed powdered activated carbon for mercury removal from coal-fired power plant flue gas.   This product stands apart from most available mercury control sorbents in that is it non-halogenated. The Carbonxt product has been tested using full-scale activated carbon injection studies under various conditions.  The testing includes a span of coal and boiler types, injection location/particulate control configurations, injection rates, and concentration of SO3 (inherent and injected for flue-gas conditioning).  This presentation will review the mercury control performance and operational impacts, including particle emissions and fly ash utilization, of these recent test events.
